Synopsis: The goal of this study was to examine factors associated with first juvenile justice involvement and recidivism among children placed in out-of-home care. The study design consisted of a longitudinal analysis with 24 months follow-up. Results of multivariate Cox regression survival analysis indicated that multiple out-of-home placements, conduct disorder, attention deficit disorder, and substance abuse disorder were associated with first juvenile justice involvement. Results of logistic regression indicated that race, age, attention deficit, and conduct disorder were associated with recidivism.
